Domestic Violence and the Role of the Employer

Recent cases involving high profile public figures and professional athletes have brought increased awareness to the prevalence and impact of domestic violence. The Canadian Women's Foundation has reported that 3,300 women are forced out of their homes on any given night due to domestic violence, a startling fact that has wide implications for both individuals physical and mental health. And while we typically think of domestic violence as taking place in the home, it all too often spills into other areas of a victim’s life, be it school, in the community, or the workplace. There have been terrible tragedies involving victims who have been killed while at work stemming from a domestic violence issue. Two cases in particular have brought more awareness to the roles and responsibilities of employers when they become aware of an issue of domestic violence issue: Lori Dupont in Ontario was killed by her intimate partner (who worked with her) while at work in a Windsor Hospital in 2005 Tony McNaughton who was killed in 2000 at a Starbucks in Vancouver when trying to intervene to protect a victim of domestic violence at work Workplaces can play a pivotal role in supporting and in some cases, protecting victims of domestic violence. But when should the workplace step in? And what type of support should be ready to make available to employees when they need it the most?

Improving Mental Health at Work: The National Standard for Psychological Health and Safety in the Workplace

Without a doubt, mental health is a significant business issue that requires attention. Organizations have an important role to play in creating the conditions in which employees experiencing mental health issues can work more productively -- having a positive impact on the employee, other staff, and the business as a whole. In an effort to build mentally health workplaces, The Mental Health Commission of Canada (MHCC) has developed the National Standard for Psychological Health and Safety in the Workplace. The Standard is a voluntary set of guidelines, tools and resources focused on promoting employees' mental health and preventing potential harm. While the response to this initiative has been positive, some organizations are still unsure as to what steps they need to take in order to implement these standards in their workplace. To provide guidance, the MHCC, along with the Canadian Standards Association and the Great-West Life Centre for Mental Health in the Workplace, have developed Assembling the Pieces: An Implementation Guide to the National Standard for Psychological Health and Safety in the Workplace. This practical, hands-on guide has been created to assist organizations in navigating the wealth of information the Standard has to offer, and is designed to support organizations from the planning stages through to full implementation.

Waking Up: The Real Risks of Fatigue in the Workplace

Virtually every employee experiences some level of fatigue on the job from time to time. However, many individuals believe that they can adapt to chronic sleep loss or that a single, extended sleep episode will compensate for it. This is not the case. Excessive fatigue, and the resulting decrease in alertness, can negatively impact an employee's reaction time and lead to reduced vigilance, reduced decision-making ability, poor judgment, distraction during complex tasks, and loss of awareness in critical situations. Excessive fatigue can also hamper an employee's health and reduce his or her productivity at work. Employers are becoming increasingly aware of, and concerned about, the direct costs and risks of fatigue in the workplace. In response, the Conference Board's Health and Safety Leadership Centre has undertaken a research study which examines some of the strategies and leading practices currently in place in Canadian organizations to manage fatigue in the workplace. The research also put a particular focus on strategies and practices that are in place to manage more complex work situations including, for example, remote work sites, extensive shift work, and safety-sensitive industries.

Add Value by Quantifying The Impact of Attrition

Are you letting the good ones get away? For many companies the prevailing attitude is that lower employee turnover is always better, but some amount of turnover is unavoidable and can actually be healthy for your business. Instead of continually pushing for lower turnover, significant value can be unlocked by reducing high-impact turnover. By tracking attrition of your highest performers rather than the amount of turnover, you can focus on retaining those employees most critical to your business.

The Un-Bossy Boss: Bringing Out the Best in Your Employees

Individual contributors are responsible for bringing their best selves to work, while managers are responsible for bringing out the best in others. A manager has the critical role of translating the organization’s strategy and leadership priorities into something actionable for frontline employees. Strategy execution falls flat if the manager isn’t equipped with the skills and tools to successfully translate the strategy and bring out the best in others. Join us for this 60-minute webinar where Gary Magenta will explore what every manager needs to know to drive business results through people. Through real-life case studies, Gary will share meaningful, practical examples for managers to lead individuals and teams so they can soar to new heights. In business today, organizations have complex strategies they need to deploy. Managers are responsible for engaging and connecting their employees to that strategy. The problem is that many of them are failing to do so, because they don’t have the necessary skills or capability to coach their employees to success. Managers are ultimately the group most responsible for the success or failure of an organization—not the leadership team. Become a better manager and deliver better business results.
